Lucky Strike Green Has Gone To War

The signs on the walls were predominately for tobacco products. Lucky Strike cigarettes, then in a green package which became white at the beginning of WW2 because the copper used in making the ink was needed for the war effort. The pipe tobacco brands "George Washington" and the famous canned "Prince Albert" were both products of the RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company. The brand "Stud" was a tobacco product, used if you rolled your own or, I guess, chewed.

I don't think they used enough nails to attach the batons.
